Taleb Alrefai: Adventures of a Gulf Sailor: The Last 12 Hours

Friday 8 March, 7.30pm-8.30pm

Al Baraha 1, InterContinental, DFC

Authors: Taleb Alrefai
This is a tale of the love of a young Kuwaiti man for the sea; a man who has dedicated his life to it after finding life in his city unbearable, and who maintains his bond with the waters that continually call him.

Based on a true story that took place in February 1979, the novel Al Najdi was nominated for the 2018 International Prize for Arabic Fiction. In this compelling talk, author Taleb Alrefai celebrates the remarkable life that inspired a gripping book.
